Many people know Hattie Kauffman as the first Native American to ever report on national network news. But after retiring from CBS News in 2012, Hattie found another way of storytelling: with a paintbrush.
In 2015, Hattie’s oil painting “Girl’s Grand Entry” was exhibited at Washington State University. The same painting was chosen as the official image of that year’s Seattle Seafair Pow Wow at Daybreak Star Cultural Center. A one month exhibit at Sacred Circle Gallery followed, in which 9 of 12 paintings were sold making it one of the most successful exhibits in the gallery’s history.
Hattie’s painting “Jingle It Out” was selected for the New Mexico Art League’s small works exhibit in December, 2015.
In March 2016, two of Hattie’s paintings were exhibited at the Desert Wellness Center in Palm Desert, California: while in July, two more pieces were selected for the “Art of the Flower” exhibit in Albuquerque.
And in August 2016, Hattie was the featured artist at the Chief Seattle Club during the very popular Thursday night Art Walk in Pioneer Square.
Her brief visit to Spokane (Sept 30-Oct 1) is your chance to see the work of this rising Nez Perce artist.
